Question about IBM 6400 Matrix Printer

IBM 6400 missing decimal...

Hello:

My first post - this site seems quite good.

Please see attached document...

Note the digits under Credits column. Its supposed to appear as the digits under the Charges column. The decimal is missing and the spread between the dollar and cents values seem bigger than normal. All numbers that in the Credits column appear uniformly like this.This happened suddenly with no fading preceding the issue.

I replaced the ribbon and did some clean-up...no-go.

Any help is appreciated.

-Steve

Is there print missing??? if so the hammer fret in that location probably (90%) needs cleaning as dirt can get between the fret, it only takes the smallest amount of debris to stop fret working, you need to remove hammer bank to do this, fairly simple to do just lots of screws. the only thing to check when reinstalling hammer bank is that you pull it towards you ( front of printer ) before tightening the 3 screws, this is to be sure the gap between hammer bank and platen is roughly correct. there are 2 small grub screws at each end of platen to adjust this gap if you need to.

T40 2373 no wireless connection


Hi it sounds like your driver is missing or corrupt , this may be the case if u have recently installed windows, go to control panel click on sytem icon then click on device manager button under the hardware tab, have a look then under network adapters to see if there is a yellow warning icon if so make a note of the name and you should be able to download the driver from this location. its near the bottom under networking wireless.

How do I print Microsoft Word documents on an IBM 6400 matrix printer?


What driver are you using for the printer?

Also, when you go to print the document, you will see a printer listed on the top of the print menu screen.

Next to that, there will be a down arrow. Click on the drop down arrow and select the IBM InfoPrint printer you want.

IBM 6400 model i10 print problem


It's likely a "hammer" is defective. This can be caused by
a build up of ink under the ribbon shield and/or around the hammer "fret" itself or the fret is physically broken. Remember
that this is a "shuttle" printer and each fret covers anywhere from
one to three characters depending on model. Some cover fractions of characters as well. The problem will appear as either
data missing on the left or right margin or a blank column of missing data going down the page.

A technician is required to solve all of these problems as the
shuttle assembly must be removed.
